COPPA, the law that every content creator on the internet is worried about right now, is going to impact all creators in some way but should you go through the trouble of adding disclaimers to the beginning of your video or limiting the content you make in order to make sure you don’t violate COPPA and get fined? This episode addresses two questions about COPPA (Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act) and shares my thoughts on if you should mark your videos “for kids” or “not for kids” and how to approach the situation in general.
